Maryam warns of staging hunger strike outside Kot Lakhpat prison

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Maryam Nawaz warned on Monday of staging a hunger strike outside the Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore if her father, Nawaz Sharif, was not allowed homemade food.

Nawaz, who has thrice been the prime minister of Pakistan, was sentenced to seven years in prison after being convicted by an accountability court in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills case. He remains incarcerated at Kot Lakhpat prison in Lahore.

“The fake government has placed a restriction on homemade food for Nawaz Sharif sahib. The staff taking the meals has been standing outside the prison for the last five hours,” Maryam tweeted.

She said the former premier had declined to have food provided to him by the jail authorities.

“I will approach the court if they do not withdraw the restriction,” the former first daughter said. “If [I] did not get help even from the court, then I will sit outside Kot Lakhpat prison. I will even stage a hunger strike, if I have to,” she said.

Referring to the jail authorities as “oppressors”, Maryam said she did not trust them. She said she feared that they could add anything to Nawaz’s food.

Maryam said her warning should not be considered an idle threat. “I will go through with it,” she warned.

    Dear Maryam Bibi, Allah has given you a good opportunity. It would be a good idea to announce that you will take upon yourself, on your own expense and feed all the prisoners in the jail, In this way your father along with all the prisoners will enjoy the home made healthy food. This on one hand will be a good political stunt to show public that you (pretend) to care for all the prisoners and they are all equal before you eyes and on the other hand you will earn some rewards for Allah. WHY YOU ALWAYS THINK ABOUT YOUR OWN FAMILY, look at this scenario as a CORRUPTION opportunity and spread it among the prisoners including your dad so everyone can reap the rewards. Since accountability has started and government and judicial machinery is working, who knows you too may also get to enjoy the home made food with you father. so, REAP TODAY SO YOU CAN SOW TOMORROW.
